Current Session Info

2021-2022 3rd - 12th Grade BAC Basketball

3rd - 8th Grade Players ~
An "A" team will be selected that participates in a more competitive league (the Manchester Suburban League, ie. MSL). Other teams are balanced amongst each other, stress equal play and participate in the Merrimack Basketball League (MBL). All teams can expect 2 Practices during the week and a game on Saturdays (MSL can have games any day of the week). Both leagues end the season with playoffs/tournament. The MBL ends when February vacation begins. MSL ends in mid-March.

MBL teams will also play in a Bow/Dunbarton Weekend Tournament in Bow shortly before February vacation. MSL teams are expected to play in the BAC Tournament held over February Vacation.

HS Grade Players ~
Boys: Play in the MBL with 2 practices during the week and games on the weekend. Followed by an end of season playoffs/tournament lasting a week after the regular season (and before February vacation).
Girls: Unfortunately, there isn't a girls league (unless they want to play in the boys league). We have never been able to get enough players to form a team and even if we did - there is no league to play in.

The BMS school team has the option (but not requirement) to double roster and play in the MSL (with games on weekends only).

Evaluations are held at all levels to help balance teams, information provided during registration regarding dates and times of evaluations. No players are cut from the program.

The past several seasons we have operated at a budget deficit, so we have had to increase the registration costs this year. We also are requiring the purchase of game shorts (that will match the jersey top). Typically, we would expect players to get two seasons of use out of both (so if you bought a jersey last year you will likely not need to purchase a new jersey this year). We are making the purchase of a practice jersey optional, as well.

2021-2022 1st & 2nd Grade BAC Basketball

To be held at the Bow Elementary School gym, cafeteria or the Bow Community Center. One or two practices each week (exact time will be based on availability of coaches). Season begins as early as November 30th and may run up to February vacation.

Players will be notified of their team/coach towards the end of November.

There are no evaluations for these players and teams are set up based on a variety of factors (many of which include available times, carpooling, friend groups, schedules and sometimes skill level).

This is a fun league and sometimes the team set up can result in games with lopsided scores - the kids do not seem to mind, but this sometimes frustrates parents. One player, at this age, that really understands the game can completely change the outcome. Keep in mind - this is truly about having fun and more competitive teams and greater emphasis for skill sets and equal teams, etc. begins in 3rd grade.

Fall Field Hockey 2021

Registration is closed

BAC Fall Field Hockey offers a fun and instructional program for students entering grades 1-6 (fall of 2020). Our program’s emphasis is to teach the fundamentals of the game of field hockey through practice of stick skills and game play.

Our program has a strong focus on team work and good sportsmanship. There are no try outs or evaluations, and players are placed on a team strictly by grade level.

For the 1st and 2nd grade team, they will meet once a week from 5:30-6:30 for six weeks. The practice day will depend on field availability.

We will have two teams; a 3rd-4th grade team, and a 5th-6th.

Each team will have two weekday evening practices from 5:30-6:30 and games will be held on weekend mornings. Games are scheduled according to the availability of other local area Park and Rec. teams. Practice and game schedules will be emailed to all registered players in late August.

Program will run from first week in September to mid/late October. Our registration fee will include the use of a stick for the season and a game/practice jersey. Girls must provide a mandatory mouth guard, eyewear and shin guards.
